Connections 2035 Long-Range Plan Adopted by DVRPC Board

A message from DVRPC:

Connections – The Regional Plan for a Sustainable Future was adopted by the DVRPC Board on July 23, 2009 as the long-range plan for the Greater Philadelphia region. The Plan addresses land use, environmental, economic competitiveness and transportation policies, and includes a set of fiscally constrained transportation projects. The Connections plan puts a strong emphasis on creating livable communities, managing growth and protecting resources, building an energy-efficient economy, and creating a modern multi-modal transportation system. The Plan includes a needs assessment which identified a significant gap between anticipated transportation funding and system maintenance and reconstruction needs.
